"Filled with a generous mix of fantasy, intrigue, and grab-you-by-the-throat horror, Alethea Kontis's HAVEN is a powerhouse novel every fan of fine YA literature should have on the shelf." -Bram Stoker Award winner Tom Piccirilli
"Funny dialogue and a great rapport between the characters keeps this story out of the realm of paint-by-numbers melodrama. The villain is excellently evil... Can't wait for more from Alethea Kontis. Preferably, right now."
"Kontis writes with poise and passion, delivering chills and thrills with every page. A must read." -New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon
"HAVEN is a page-turner and its characters are drawn well-they're believable, both in their actions and in their dialogue (the 'dialogue' of young teens isn't as easily captured as some writers with less talent believe). It's an exciting tale of witchery and revenge, told with style and intelligence, that is, most importantly, a heck of a lot of fun. I simply enjoyed it from start to finish." -T. M. Wright, author of A Manhattan Ghost Story
From the Author
My heartfelt thanks and sincerest apologies to the residents of Haven, Kansas. Imagine my jaw-dropping shock when I discovered that a town I dreamt up actually existed! Of course I had to visit, take copious amounts of pictures, and then rewrite a bunch of Made-Up Haven scenes with bits of trivia from Real Life Haven.
Residents will recognize which parts of this tale exist in this world and which do not. With any luck, the rest of you will never know.
